As you may know the UK is only just starting to gain 4G capabilities, but after some great news that the iPhone 5 4G LTE  version will be hitting the UK were all wondering which networks it will work with, to start off we already know that EE will be the first to launch the phone on their network, after which Three are likely to use their spectrum which they purchased from the carrier to host 4G for the phone.

But unfortunately that doesn’t leave much choice as to two other major networks here in the UK, Vodaphone and O2, have no option but to sit this one out until Ofcom’s spectrum auction, where they will be selling off the 800MHz and 2.6GHz frequencies, neither of which will support any of the iPhone 5 models that have been announced so far.

But that’s not the only bad news, as EE’s network will not be ready before the iPhone 5 hits shops on September 21st, as such customers wishing to get on the 4G bandwagon straight away, will have to initially register with Orange or T-Mobile and be migrated across on a later date.

There’s no news on any contract prices for the UK carriers just yet, but we do know the iPhone 5 will be priced at around £529 SIM-free.
